Brandywine Valley SPCA Rescue & Rehab Center this week opened its doors early in Georgetown, having taken in more than 200 animals from three shelters in North Carolina that were impacted by Hurricane Florence.
Some of the dogs moved to BVSPCA’s New Castle and West Chester Campuses for adoption, and some cats and dogs were transferred to other shelters. More than 100 adoptable cats and dogs were kept at the center in Georgetown, available to join families as the center opened for adoptions on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22-23.
The cats and dogs come from three shelters in North Carolina: one flooded by storm waters (Cumberland County) and two that needed to move their existing shelter population to make room for family pets rescued during the storm (Pitt County, Guilford County).
“Our initiative is moving animals previously available for adoption; no local animals found during the storm will leave the area to ensure the best chance of being reunited,” representatives emphasized.

“This is a great opportunity for a family thinking of adopting to make a big difference.”
